Vallevo - Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

"Made entirely of the Montepulciano grape from the foothills of central Italy’s Abruzzo region. Abruzzo's rugged terrain, 65% of which is mountainous, help to isolate the region from the winemaking influence of the ancient Romans and Etruscans in Tuscany but the area has had a long history of wine production. Montepulciano makes some famous top-end big reds here in the Abruzzo, but the variety also makes amazingly good inexpensive red wine, far better than comparable Sangiovese."
